CAN-2004-0077 Linux kernel do_mremap VMA limit local privilege escalation
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:53 EST
Paul Starzetz discovered a flaw in return value checking in mremap()
in the Linux kernel versions 2.4.24 and previous that may allow a
local attacker to gain root privileges. No exploit is currently
available; however this issue may be exploitable.
Affected: 2.1AS-ia64 2.1AW-ia64
Embargoed until Feb18
